sunless tanning ottawa

Instant tan

As the daylight wanes and summer's sun-kissed skin fades, there's the desire to maintain a healthy glow. But not everyone is willing or able to bake under the heat of a tanning bed's fluorescent bulbs.

That's when spray tanning -- or sunless tanning -- is a quick and easy alternative.

Spray tanning has been around for several years and has come a long way since Ross from Friends sported a pumpkin-orange face on one hilarious episode. Now with improved products, the air-brushed or spray-on finish is a more desirable streak-free, golden tone.

"Orange really doesn't happen anymore," says Al Kaeding, owner of The Tan Co. on Carling Avenue. "So you're not getting the Ross look from Friends anymore. With the newer solutions, that is almost impossible."

The active ingredient in the spray is dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, which is a colourless sugar cane-based solution that interacts with the amino acids in dead skin cells to produce a browning effect.

Is there anywhere where you can buy St Tropez products in barrhaven (or ottawa), Ontario?

Hello, I am looking for a good sunless self tanner. I am currently trying Jergens Natural Glow, which is turning my skin to a yellowish tint. I don't like the yellow tint in the formula and I heard from a friend that St. Tropez is a much better brand.
